The best way to quickly learn about this city is to take a walking tour with Plami; knowledgable, energetic and fun she packs a lot into this 2.5 hours. She does not ask but please pay her something

We did the free city walk about Sreet art. It is an alternative walk which starts at 6 p.m.. It takes between 2 to 3 hours, and shows you some special corners of the city. Very interesting and original.
